Lancashire voters three times more likely to vote for anti-shale candidates
overwhelming majority of people in Lancashire want a moratorium on fracking
until more research is available on the impacts of the controversial industry,
with many shale sceptics ready to take their opposition to the ballot box, a
new survey shows.
poll of 500 Lancashire residents released today shows nearly two thirds (63%)
are in favour of a fracking ban, with an even stronger majority (69%) saying
more time should be allowed for a public debate to take place before planning
authorities decide on drilling licences.
